Q: What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done to get your hands on any particular book?
When Teen Geek was little (6-ish) he had no interest in books over about 12 pages long. I really wanted him to get into longer books and stretch his reading muscles, so I brought home Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. We were both immediately hooked and spent the next several years eagerly awaiting new installments. When he was 10, I fed him (and his BFF) full of sugar and waited 7 hours for a midnight release. One year I didn’t pre-order and got turned away from our regular midnight release site, so I drove across town and begged at another bookstore…thankfully, they let us in and we got our book!
My follow up question is: Was it worth it?
